"I really believe that if there's an afterworld of Friends, they're still thriving," she said. "Don't you?"
Matt LeBlanc's publicist said he couldn't comment on the Rachel and Joey theory right now.
And Willett told BuzzFeed News in an email that it's "absolutely bonkers" that a conversation that started between her and a few friends is now on Jennifer Aniston's radar.
She also said she's not "surprised or upset" that their opinions differ on the matter. "Jennifer is an actress and playing the role of Rachel Green ... and Ross/Rachel is the relationship that was canon endgame," said Willett, who used her fandom-related Twitter account to express her theory. "So that's what they wrote, so that's what she was told to play, so of course, that's what she's invested in."
"I absolutely understand why she would feel that way," Willett said. "But I also completely stand by everything that I said."
